The Lazy Days of Summer Case Review

Atech STK6551

Atech sent us a newly revised and updated version of its AFT6551 case: the STK6551.

Atech is not a stranger to our case reviews. They previously submitted a case known as the AFT6551, and the STK6551 is an updated version. Atech kept the majority of the internals of the new offering the same as in the previous case. The biggest change, however, is found in its translucent acrylic outer covering, the most important major new feature of this case.
